Webmaker goal is encouraging millions of people around the world to move beyond using the web to making it. To achieve this goal mozilla started a global program called maker party. On 20 June we (Mozilla Bangladesh) arrange our first maker party of this summer as a part of moztour chittagong at East Delta University. Thanks to CSE dept of EDU to let us jointly arrange this awesome event.

It was a very interesting seesion. He discuss about webmaker tools, resources and community. Audience loves the session very much and they where very much interactive.
